Ernest Frederick Elmhurst
Ernest Frederick Elmhurst, previously Hermann Fleischkopf (July 27, 1891 - March 1, 1967) was the author of the book, The World Hoax (1939). In August 1937 he was an American delegate to the Pan-Aryan Anti-Jewish Union in Erfurt, Germany. The international conference was sponsored by World Service.
Elmhurst was the head of the Pan-Aryan Alliance.
Elmhurst was a defendant in the Great Sedition Trial of 1944. During the trial he worked as a head waiter at the Shoreham Hotel in Washington. Political gossip columnist Walter Winchell, learned of this and pushed for Elmhurst's dismissal on his national radio show and got him fired.
In October 1945 Elmhurst was arrested in New York City with Homer Maerz, a publisher of articles on Jewish ritual murder and Kurt Mertig, a pro-German leader of the Citizens' Protective League on charges of unlawful assembly and selling pamphlets on Jewish ritual murder. Maerz had an additional charge of disorderly conduct. All three were found guilty. Mertig and Elmhurst received a six month sentence in a work house. Maerz was sentenced to one year in the city prison.
In 1952 and 1956 he secretly went inside East Germany to observe conditions in that communist country.
